VincentL: I have not posted on this site for many years, but have just learned of the passing of Daniel Freeman. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

VincentL: "Easy". 11. Bxh7+ Kxh7 12. Qh5+ Kg8 13. Ng5 Re8 14. Qxh7+ Kf8 15. Qh8+ Ke7 16. Qxg7 with Qf6# to follow. Black can give up Q for N with 13......Qxg5. If black declines the original sacrifica and plays 11.....Kh8 mate will follow after 12. Qh5 and Bg6+
   Jun-04-12 S Sery vs Z Vecsey, 1921 (replies)
VincentL: "Very easy". I did not fare well with last week's puzzles. On to ths week, Monday is normal queen sacrifice fare: 17. Qxf7+ (a) 17.....Rxf7 18. Re8#. (b) 17.....Kh8 18. Rxf8#.
   May-29-12 G Burgess vs W N Watson, 1989 (replies)
VincentL: I soon looked at 38.....Qg3+ 39. Rxg3 fxg3+ but didn't notice it was mate !
   May-28-12 V Greenwalt vs B Wall, 1983 (replies)
VincentL: "Very Easy". 7. Nxd4. If 8. exd4 or queen moves Bxg2 followed by Bxh1. Best for white may be 8. exd4 Bxg2 9. f3 Bxh1 10. Qf2 with black losing B for P resulting in a net gain of R + P for B + N (and a far superior position). If 8. Bxb7 Nxc2+ 9. Kd1 Nxa1` 10. Nxa8 leaving black a ...

VincentL: Nailed it.
   May-23-12 J Nogueiras vs M Gongora, 2001 (replies)
VincentL: I had five minutes to look at this, and didn't solve it.
   May-22-12 F Kraus vs V Costin, 1913 (replies)
VincentL: 'Easy'. 8. Bb5 and now if 8.....Qxb5 9. Nc7+ followed by Nxb5 leaving white with Q for B. If black does not play Qxb5 then after 9. Bxc6 Nxc6 white has the same material gain.
   May-21-12 Benjamin vs N Gamboa, 1995 (replies)
VincentL: "Very Easy". 15. Qxc6+ and black surely resigned. 15.....bxc6 allows 16. Rb8# If 15.....Kd8 16. Rxb7 and mate follows.
   May-17-12 Alekhine vs K Opocensky, 1943 (replies)
VincentL: "Medium". For a few seconds I thought 48. g6 might win, but after K side pawn captures the black king can get over to the Q side to stop the a pawn queening. So 48. h6! Now black must move his king back, allowing 49. Kxe5. 48.....Kf7 offers most resistance. Then 49. Kxe5 Kg6. 50.
